While the Nokia 3310 does little more than let you make calls, send texts, and play Snake - and, even then, not if you're in the US - brand-licensee HMD did have two new Android smartphones for the Barcelona show. The Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 slotted in beneath the existing Nokia 6, but it's in true flagship position that HMD is believed to be targeting its next handset.

A few days back, Google confirmed that there will be a new Pixel phone released in 2017. Obviously, Google's going to look to make a number of improvements with this new device, but today we're hearing that it might take a step back in some regards, as the Pixel is rumored to lose its 3.5mm headphone jack with this latest iteration.

iPhone 8 wireless charging only the start: 5 Apple teams reportedly involved

The iPhone 8 may embrace wireless charging, but Apple is reportedly going all-in with developing cable-free solutions, with claims that five different teams at the company are all working on the technology. The absence of wireless charging has long been a point of criticism about the iPhone, forcing owners who want to be free of wires to either jump ship to Android devices where the tech has been commonly offered for some time, or to pick up a third-party adapter, like Mophie's recent Juice Packs. Now, though, it's apparently full-steam-ahead at Cupertino.
